The funeral will e place from the home in that LONDON, Nov. 28 Some of the soldiers who served in the great war . are finding humdrum life of the civ- ilian too monotonous to endure and are offering to risk their lives in cam paigns anywhere or la any au.nture to escape the tedium of of if or shop i life. An example is shown in the fol lowing advertisement which appeared ; in the London paper the other day: i "Young ex-soldier, three times ' wounded, will risk life for 200 pounds, I tired of life and all alone, write, etc." i Inquiry disclosed that the advertis I er was formerly a stretcher bearer in jthe Royal Army Me.vcal Corps, who I won the military medal at Matinpuich medal. After his discharge he ob tained employment as civilian clerk in the Royal Air Force. "I am paid 3 pounds a week," he told an interviewer, "but I om asham ed to take it. For weeks I have not done a stroke of work. Dothing noth ing all Day is getting on my nerves. I cannot stand it; I want action. Per haps some cinema firm might want somebody for a particularly risky job." Reecntly four officers advertued themselves as ready to enlist in any capacity in any campaign for any country, provided there was "some fighting to be done." ring how much of a figure the is- will cut in the campaign. It does now seem possible that either of fe big parties are going to escape. Both parties are making declarations on the wet and dry issues. Office seekers thought that when enough states had ratified- national prohibition to adopt the eighteenth amendment to the federal constitu tion this troublesome question was out of the way for good. There is every indication that the .-t and dry issues are not dead if. 'Missouri. Candidates of bith parties were never in such a plight on prohibition as they are at present. Three times prohibition has been submitted to the voters of the state only to be rejected by such large ma jorities as to leave no doubt as to public sentiment. Conditions now are calculated to allay public feeling over the wet and dry fight. In the eastern half of the state dramshops can sell war-time beer with the ap proval of the federal court, while in the western half of the state the sale of any beverages, save such as could be vended at a pink tea or Sunday school picnic, are prohibited. In localities where aramshops were licensed before the advent of prohi bition the saloon keepers, to a large number, have taken out their licenses up to January 16, 1920, and yet over a certain line in the state they are forbidden to sell what it Is legal to sell under the same licenses in an other part of the state. Not a few students of Missouri poli tics say the politicians are up against the hardest game in this state they aver played. If either party nomi nates a state ticket pledged to a strict enforcement of national prohibition and renouncing all the police powers of the state the wet vote will desert that ticket. They point to the fate ihat overtook Joseph W. Folk at the last general election as a sample of what the wet voters can do. J. ?. .J. J .J. J 4- 4- r.M ia Mo v to Escape School NEW YORK, Nov.. 28.

The float ing of a great popular loan in Amer ica, of from $2,000,000,000 to $4. 000.000,000, was discussed here last week by a committee of the American Bankers' Association and a commit tee of the English, French, Belgian and Italian trade missions, who a-e now in New York on a tour of the United States. Edward A. Filene, of Boston, a di rector of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, who is accom panying the delegates on their tour, said that after the tour is ended se curities will be issued in denomina tions as low as $50, so as to be with in reach of everybody. Mr. Filene declared that Europe wanted to buy foods here, but that the rate of ex change stands in the way, and will decline further, unless a remedv is found. The only adequate remedy, he pointed out, is a popular loan. "We have moral as well as busi ness obligations," Mr. Fflene said. "The allies fought out war for three years. I hey are tackling then; prob lems of reconstruction in a valiant spirit. If we finr.nce them now we will stimulate their reconstruction, and make them better customers in our market." I Charlie Renner, 18-year-old son of Mr. J. D. Renner, of wedar Creek, is in the hospital in Greeneville in a critical condition, as the result of wounds sustained from a full charge of shot from a shotgun which entered his left side. Young Renner was riding on the rear of the Cedar Creek truck, bet ter known as Sebe Conduff's Bus, when a young man named Fred Can non, who had been hunting stepped up and told him to stop. Conduff paid no attention to the command, but continued toward Greeneville. Cannon then leveled ms gun at Ren ner, on the rear step, and fired, the entire charge entering Renner's right side. When questioned,- Cannon said ho thought that the gun was empty, and it is reported that he dearly went into hysterics when he found what he had done. He has not been apprehended thus far, and some seen inclined to think that he has attempted a get away since the accident. The accident occurred this morning about 9 o'clock near the home of Mr. Samuel Freshour, a mile and a half east of Cedar Creek. Young Renner was immediately rushed to the Green ville hospital, where latest reports stat ed that his condition is very critical, and little hope for his recovery.

Sever-) il times the ball was carried inside Maryville's 15-yard line, but each time the Highlanders strengthened, and either held for downs or forced Tusculum to attempt a field goal.

These runners vere halted each time by brilliant ackling on the part of Dugger, play ing safety for Tusculum. Tusculum started an offensive im mediately after the game started which for a time threatened to carry 'ier to a whirlwind victory. Receiv ing the kick-off on their own ten ard line, within six minutes they car "od the ball to the Maryville 1 5-yard line, where a field goal was attempt ed and failed. During the whole off this ouarter. the ball was held in Miirvville territory. The Highlanders assumed the at tack during the second period, and held the ball in Tusculum territory during the greater part of the time Jellicorse got away for a 35-yard run in this period, which ended with tlu ball in Maryville's possession on the Tusculum 25-yard Jine. Advantage swung back to Tuscu lum in the third quarter, and the ttot in position to attempt two field goals, one from the 15-yard line. Maryville completed one of its long passes toward the end of the period. The Highlanders had the advantage, in the last period, though the ball was never far from the center of the field.
